Brian Boyle brings a lot of intangibles. Character guy, and he's going to win you a few more faceoffs...

Yeah, I think this used to be a big asset of his but it's tailed off. Love the return, almost makes me forget that we inexplicably traded a 2nd for Mueller.

I think everyone likes Boyle, but I don’t think many thought he would bring back a 2nd round pick. Shero got a good return there on a wasted season.

I am going to cry when Nyquist gets a poorer return.

He's just a top-6 scorer, not a hurt and soil player.

Doesnt matter where he plays if he produces. Its like saying hall hasnt scored in a while since hes been injured.

Wasn’t sure why the post got deleted, then noticed the word filter to Cactus-wiener. Lol.

I’m wondering if we wind up getting less for Marcus Johansson than we did for Boyle.

I was waiting to hear the conditions on this second, then found out it was a 2nd straight up!!! What a deal!

Now, lets rent out Mojo and Yak to pitts for a 1st. I think Mojo would be a perfect solution to that 3C vacancy, and Yak could certainly boost that bottom pairing.

Haha that could very well be the case. Does not make sense, but as a Dev's fan, I am happy! I still like Kronwall as a rental in Toronto. His game has declined, but he can still play as a bottom pairing with grit, and the Leafs only have one RHD! He wouldn't fetch much of a return, but anything is better than nothing.

Will miss Boyle, just the type player you love having on your team. Wish him all the best!

Love the 2nd though.

Cory looks okay so far, which is a problem because I don't want to get any points out of this.

A mixed blessing. On the good, Corey looked great (very happy for him). On the bad, Corey looked great, not good for our lotto prospects...

I was at the game and it was kind of funny. I didn't want any points, but since the game ended up close, I was hoping Cory could come up with a win. Just to get the monkey off his back and maybe become a legit goalie again. In a way the worst thing happened and we got a point and he lost.

Well the good news is the Kings and Sens both won, so even with the point we are closer to rock bottom.

Well if Cory is to be traded that was a great game for his value!
